EBRON (עֶבְרֹ֥ן), KJV Hebron. A town located in the territory allotted to Asher (Josh 19:28) consisting of the NW corner of Pal. bordering the Mediterranean. “Ebron” is quite possibly a misspelling of the MT for Abdon (עַבְדֹּ֖ון) due to a scribal confusion of ד and ר. See Abdon.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(`ebhron; the King James Version wrongly, Hebron):

A town in the territory of Asher (Jos 19:28). Probably we should read here Abdon, as in Jos 21:30; 1Ch 6:74, the substitution of the Hebrew letter resh ("r") for the Hebrew letter daleth ("d") being a common copyist’s error.

See Abdon.
